Beyond the Horizon: Strategic Supply Chain Imperatives for Future Supply Chain Professionals

 APICS Webinar Helping to Realize the Potential of Supply Chain Management by Looking Beyond the Horizon

Date:  May 19, 2016
Time: 1:00–2:00 p.m. Central

The mantra of “faster, better, cheaper” is no longer enough. As consumers increasingly demand personalization and quality service, supply chain managers must champion a new set of strategic and operational competencies to achieve customer satisfaction and beat the competition. This webinar, based on the Supply Chain Management: Beyond the Horizon research project, will share insights about how firms respond to

  • changing customer expectations that require new, complex channel and fulfillment processes throughout the supply chain
  • rethinking how to develop and manage supplier relationships to co-create value
  • managing globalization, complexity, and risk management to offer opportunities for growth, rather than just reacting to constraints.
